I've had it with the finicky tuning of my vintage 70s Ludwig drums that I've struggled with for 15 years. After getting edges redone, countless head combinations, checking the hoops, Drum Dial and Tune-Bot machinations, installing INDe mounts, I'm convinced they are just duds. When the phase of the moon is right and the room cooperates they sound great but it's just too iffy. I put them up on CL today - LINK. I plan on buying a new Ludwig Classic Maple kit in Sky Blue Pearl. I've already sold around $1100 in the last 3 months of "excess inventory" plus plan to sell some more and will have net zero expense after selling this kit. Like an old GF or ex-wife, there are reasons why we broke up so I'm not worried about regrets. I play mostly unmiked low-volume rock gigs these days. I like the idea of getting a Downbeat set from a weight perspective but am concerned that they won't have the oomph and lower tuning range of a Fab 22. Seems like a lot of folks are opting for the Downbeat configuration. Seeking advice for getting one over the other with regards to tuning range. Also, advice on where to buy online. Interstate quoted me further discount from MAP via online chat but 2 months delivery. I imagine other retailers would do a similar deal but not ready to pull the trigger today so I don't want to exercise them just yet. Thanks!
